At 0.82 inches, the PowerShot ELPH 320 HS is an incredibly slim camera with a 24mm Wide-Angle lens, 5x Optical Zoom, and Optical Image Stabilizer. Its stylish form is enhanced by its lustrous finish, which gives you a choice of four refined colors: Blue, Red, Silver and Black. But real beauty goes beyond skin deep with the PowerShot ELPH 320 HS digital camera. Amazingly, Canon did not sacrifice performance for style.
5x Optical Zoom with 24mm Wide-Angle Lens
The PowerShot ELPH 320 HS features a powerful Genuine Canon 5x Zoom Lens that delivers outstanding optical performance and versatility. Fitting such a high-performance lens with such wide zoom range into a camera so thin would normally be considered an impossible feat. Canon’s expert optical engineering met the challenge by developing a light-folding retractable-prism lens barrel, which achieves outstanding compactness with high zoom power and superb performance. The zoom starts at 24mm wide-angle and extends to 120mm telephoto (35mm equivalent), covering an exceptionally wide range. The telephoto reach gives you the freedom to capture subjects from a considerable distance, while the 24mm wide-angle makes it easy to shoot sweeping landscapes, large groups of people and tall buildings.
Optical Image Stabilizer
Handheld shooting can often lead to camera shake, making photos and videos blurry. Canon’s Optical Image Stabilizer is a sophisticated system that uses lens-shift technology to correct for unwanted camera movement. It makes handheld photography more practical, providing excellent image quality in many difficult shooting situations: outdoors at dusk, inside without a flash, and even at the telephoto end of the zoom range without a tripod. For photos, it enables shooting at slower shutter speeds, accommodating more low-light shooting situations than ever before without having to boost ISO sensitivity. With camera shake and vibration reduced, you get a sharper, steadier image. And because it is an optical system, there is none of the image degradation typical with electronic image stabilizers.
WiFi connectivity APP not updated
I purchased this camera to use with an iPad while travelling. However the Canon CameraWindow App that supports this on the iPad has never worked reliably and now works not at all. (IOS 6.1.3). This is very annoying and I can not see that Canon had responded to this problem which many others have reported (particularly user of IOS 7). Canon should provide a fix or some feedback to customers. I also wasted a lot of my time trying to solve and research (google) the problem. Not having an functioning App is most discouraging as it was part of the camera's advertised features!

Nice Little Package
This is a really nice little camera. I dont see what all the whining is about regarding the wifi. it works perfect. and is actually suprisingly fast at transfering pics to my iPhone. The only problem I have is accidentally taking pics w/the touch screen. and while using on screen options. besides that it takes good shots and good videos

Touch Panel inteferes with use of Camera
We have been users of Canon Cameras for years - this is the first camera that we have had to call a true disaster. The Touch screen controls are constantly getting in the way of just point and click. Priority is given to the touch screen rather than the top shutter button. This is with the touch screen to shoot mode disabled. The camera is constantly trying to re-focus with every casual brush while handling to take the real shot. We even eliminated some icons and moved others around (a very nice feature) but the camera was consistently fiddling with responding to the touch screen instead of just taking the shot! It is slow. It uses power at over twice the rate as our Canon PowerShot Elph 100 (which is a dream). It does a terrible job on motion photos and ruined a lot of shot opportunities on or recent trip. We are going to buy something else - we can't afford to have our special moments ruined by this camera.
